Join JHI Fellow Jaclyn Rohel as she hosts her research collaborators for a conversation about co-creating community-engaged research.

Members of the multidisciplinary team will discuss topics related to community-based relationship-building, equity and research co-production, knowledge translation, and public engagement, and they will share some of the lessons they learned along the way. The event will conclude with an interactive Q&A.
